This was the third year for my asparagus bed and the first year for harvesting. The thing about asparagus is that it all comes in at once and for a few weeks you have to check it and cut daily and eat as much as you possibly can before it's gone. Friends are usually quite willing to absorb the surplus. I cut asparagus and put it in my trug and carried it all around the yard and felt quite like Gertrude Jekyll.
